Program Description

PhD Human Factors

The University of Nottingham - Faculty of Engineering

PhD topics can cover many different fields within this discipline, for example, design, manufacturing, assembly, measurement, testing, and modeling.

This course requires a 2:1 or international equivalent and/or a master's degree at merit level or above in a relevant subject, and an IELTS level 6.0 (5.5 in each element). It is usually completed over a period of around three years.

Facilities

Within the Human Factors Research Group (HFRG) we possess a wide range of technical facilities which are used for research and consultancy projects, as well as for teaching.

The Usability and Ergonomics Laboratory constitutes a self-contained space containing a wide range of video and data capture equipment. As a result, we are able to conduct usability and ergonomics evaluation studies in which participants’ behavior can be observed and measured in a controlled fashion.

The HFRG Transport Simulation Laboratory enables our research work to be conducted in a safe, controlled and cost-effective environment. This has been of specific importance in out transport-related work, where we currently possess hi-fidelity car, motorcycle, and train simulators.

Research support

Support for Postgraduate Research students is coordinated through the Faculty Research Office. Each PhD student will have a main academic supervisor and at least one additional supervisor. Regular formal supervision meetings, usually once a month, will take place with one or both of your supervisors.

We also provide academic postgraduate advisors and student PGR reps are available if you have a query about procedures relating to a research study, are concerned about your progress or the facilities available.

All PhD students are enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering Training Programme, this is a structured programme of training drawing on formal external frameworks such as Joint Skills Statement, the Research Development Framework (RDF) and the Research Council guidance. The Engineering and Science Research Council (EPSRC) has recognized our Faculty programme as a sector leading standard of postgraduate research development and training.
